FIFA U/20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP-GHANA VS USA LIVE ON SUPERSPORTDStv brings you Ghana Vs USA at The Fifa U/20 Women's World Cup 2012 and on Monday the 20th at 8.45am live from Hiroshima , Japan.on - SS3 and SS10
Two years ago in Germany, the Black Princesses surpassed all expectations by making their debut appearance at the finals of the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup 2010. Despite a group-stage exit, they performed creditably and left with their heads held high, determined to secure another tilt at international glory.
Their record in the African qualifiers for both Germany 2010 and Japan 2012 is exemplary. Ghana have played ten matches in total (four for Germany and six for Japan) and won them all, proof, if any were needed, of the robust state of the women's game in their homeland.
Considerable credit must go to their coach Robert Sackey who, as well as being a passionate advocate of the female game, is the founder of the Sabisoccer Academy, which has the long-term goal of raising standards in women's football.
Ghana's readiness and confidence will certainly be put to the test in Japan. Drawn in Group D alongside China PR, plus 2004 and 2010 world champions Germany, not to mention the world's top ranked side and winner of the tournament in 2002 and 2008, USA, the Black Princesses will have to play out of their skins to make it through.
